New Video Card Problem

First, I use a 17" Samsung SyncMaster 733nw and I have a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 vid card.


My monitor is only just 3 weeks old. The first time I'd used my monitor, I'd never encountered any video problems with my old vid

card. It's an Inno3d FX 5200 128mb AGP card. Just recently, I changed my old vid card to a new one, which is a NVIDIA Ge Force

FX 5500 card. I also added 1g of Memory to my computer. The problem is that my monitor just keeps turning off and on at

certain times like opening a file, surfing the web, playing mp3 files etc. First, it hangs like 1 second and then turns off and goes

on again. I re-installed the driver but it still keeps turning off and on. Microsoft told me its about the Video Card driver.

Any solutions for my problem? I hope somebody might know what the problem is. Thanks in advance.

  4. Romove the gfx card and turn on the computer and opening a file, surfing the web, playing mp3 files etc and seee wat happens?
  5. Is it really the gfx card? I just bought it yesterday. And also I don't wanna remove I might hear the beeping sound when I re-seated my old card. Any more suggestions?
  6. do u plan on gamin with this? thats all i say :p
  7. For now, I haven't installed games on my PC 'cause its just been re-formatted. But yes, I'll use it for gaming. But before gaming, the problem about my monitor should be fixed first before I go play games.
  8. And btw, when I open a program like Bloom (Facebook Pic Uploader), my computer freezes and then restarts but no "Blue Screen of Death" showed up. I already installed the Video Card and Monitor driver but it still freezes and then restarts. Please, I want my problem to be solved ASAP. Sorry for being pushy but I'm in a hurry.
